Our football match prediction:
Burton Albion managed to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Reading, with the team sharing the spoils with Preston at Deepdale Stadium at the weekend. The newcomers are just one point clear of the relegation zone in the Championship standings, but they are regarded as hot favourites to win Saturday’s football match against Rotherham United. Burton need to take this one very seriously and we are positive that the hosts are going to fight tooth and nail against the rock-bottom team. Rotherham United have been struggling at the back in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and seeing that they are on a three-game losing run in the league, home win appears on the horizon. The Millers do not seem capable of escaping the relegation zone and we predict that they will not spoil Burton Albion’s party at Pirelli Stadium. When the two teams met in League One three years ago the Brewers emerged triumphant.
Highlighted Player (Jon McLaughlin):
Jon McLaughlin is a goalkeeper who plays for Sunderland. The 188-cm-tall shoot-stopper played for non-League sides Harrogate Railway Athletic and Harrogate Town in the past, but in 2008 he joined Bradford City. After spending six years at Valley Parade, McLaughlin signed a contract with Burton Albion and he has been playing for the Pirelli Stadium outfit ever since. Jon McLaughlin made 45 appearances for Burton Albion in both 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 seasons and he has established his self as the team’s first-choice goalkeeper. He was producing scintillating displays for Burton in the 2015/2016 League One campaign and, no doubt, he helped the team secure promotion to the Championship. Jon McLaughlin was born on 9 September, 1987 in Edinburgh, but he has yet to make his debut for the Scotland national team. Speaking of his honours, the goalkeeper won the Football League Two play-offs with Bradford City in the 2012/2013 season.
Highlighted Team (Rotherham United):
Rotherham United are an English club that compete in the Championship. Rotherham United are located in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and they play their home games at New York Stadium and the capacity of the venue is 12,021. The club was founded in 1925 as a merger between Rotherham County and Rotherham Town. The colour of Rotherham’s home kit was originally yellow and black, but nowadays they were red and white jerseys. The Millers made it to the FA Cup fifth round on two occasions (1952/1953, 1967/1968) and they have yet to play in the Premier League. Rotherham United have won the Football League One twice (1950/1951, 1980/1981), but the club’s biggest success is participation in the 1960/1961 League Cup final. Sheffield United are regarded as Rotherham United’s fiercest rivals, but the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Doncaster could be considered Rotherham’s big rivals as well.
